      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

DVD copy/backup?

Question

DEADhead

Is there any way to backup a copy-protected DVD movie? My 3yo likes to play with her DVDs and I'd like to be able to back them up on my computer. She's placed a few DVD's where we can't find them, and she's broken another couple of the discs.

Look up a program called DVD Shrink, it will allow you to back a DVD up to your computer or if you have a DVD Burner allows you to burn a copy. I don't think it is illegal to make a copy if you own it.

DVD Decrypter and Clone DVD. Work well takes 10 minutes or so.

It is perfectly legal, if you already own the movie, and are not sharing it after copying.

awesome thanks bunt2k! I'm not planning on distributing any copies, just backing up the disc. I don't know why they have such issues with that. Not being able to back up data that you already own, that is the criminal act.

The problem is most people aren't doing it honestly as your intentions are.

They circumvent the Copy Right Protection/Encryption to sell or share somebody else's product which is and should be illegal.

IMO you can hardly blame them for trying to keep their product from being stolen or misused.

It is legal to make a backup copy for your own use. DVD Shrink and Nero are good programs to use for ripping and burning to another disk.

DVD Decrypter is getting harder to find. Afaik, the main source was given a C & D order.

DVDFab and RipIt4Me are some others.

DVD Shrink is still around as far as I know. This is the program that lets you reauthor the movies (get rid of menus, subtitles, foreign language tracks, etc.) and compress it to fit on a single layer DVD.

Movies take up lots of space though. About 4.5Gb each if you've compressed them, up to nearly twice that if not. Depends on the length of the movie too, of course.

It's legal as said before if they are copies of what you already have. Takes me about an hour, but I haven't had anything that won't copy since doing this.

First get these programs: RipIt4Me, FixVTS, DVD Decrypter & DVD Shrink. Nero is the best program to use for the actual burn. Here's how you do it.

I have a folder on my C: drive that I call Temp DVD for easy access. Put the Master DVD in your drive and open RipIt4Me. I always use "one click mode". It will start the process, it opens DVD Decrypter for you and gets the DVD decrypted (this is what clears out the licensing and such). After it runs through that it will open up FixVTS to fix the files it just ripped and decrypted. Once it gets done going through that it will open up DVD Shrink. I usually just copy the entire DVD. I have it set so it shrinks it down to an ISO image. In the temp dvd folder. Now once that is complete you open Nero and tell it to burn an image. Steer to the ISO you just created and burn it. Whole process takes a while, but it's pretty automated through a lot of it.

Now if it doesn't want to work I use a program call "DVDFabDecryptor". You have to pay for the platnum version, but I haven't found a movie this one won't rip for you.

If you have any questions or need help find the programs, shoot me an email.

I could see having a backup image just in case something happens to a disk but to burn multiple copies of the same movie sounds a bit sketchy.

This is a slipery slope to say the least.....

Yep, he was just asking to make one copy so they could view that and save the origal. I do that with my two year old and have to burn a new one of her favorites every few months cause they get all scratched and fingered up.

I found one called dvd95copy that works great and they update it. It also has the burning software built in, so no need for nero, etc. It's around $20 and can be found the name plus dot com.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
